STOURBRIDGE students went on a trip through the human body and questioned whether aliens exist as they took part in a science lesson with a difference.

A huge inflatable Stardome was set up in the hall at Redhill School on Friday (February 28) courtesy of Keele University.

Youngsters climbed inside the portable planetarium and watched two films that were projected on the roof, which explored the possibility of life on other planets and how the cells in the human body work.

Following each film, the university students asked the children a series of challenging questions to encourage them to think about what they had seen.

The event was organised by The Stourbridge Educational Trust and pupils from Ridgewood High School and Pedmore Technology College also attended throughout the day.

Redhill science teacher, Kate Wilkinson, said: "The experience was great for pupils, very exciting and gave them chance to explore further into aspects of science they have covered in school. "
